Default ford U-joint size problem.

ok I have a 94 ext cab ranger 4x4 with 4.0, M5OD Trans with a electronic shift transfer case. MY current driveshat is a 2 piece with a midship bearing. I am wanting to convert it to a 1 piece driveshaft. I found a driveshaft that fits perfectly as far as length goes. I am going by an tech article at which states I can replace the u-joint to make it work or try to find a flange for the transfercase. I cannot find a flange. I bought a 1 piece driveshaft for a 98 ranger ext cab. The rear flange for the axle bolts right on but the front where it bolts to the transfercase is a bigger bolt pattern then the transfercase flange. I was going to change the end on the driveshaft from the old to the new but the U-joints are different. the old driveshaft has a u-joint that is 3.25" approx from cap to cab on both axis's. without the caps it is approx 3". the new replacement driveshaft ujoint is 3 5/8 from cap to cap or approx 3 5/16 without the caps. the caps on both driveshafts are 1 1/16. SO I guess I need to get a u-joint that is the same on one axis as the old driveshaft and the other axis needs to be the same as the new one so I can put the old driveshaft flange on the new one. If anyone can give me a part number this would be great as none of the parts stores here are of no help at all even with measurements. Thanks.

Sounds like you need a 1310 to 1330 conversion joint. Should be able to go into a local auto store and get one (ask for a conversion u joint, they will get mad because they will have to open one of them dusty books they got )
